The tamiya shocks are dope on my 2011

I think they might be referring to the steering rack?

They mean the front bearing hubs that the axles stick through

Maybe a new servo saver and steering rack dictated new knuckles for proper ackerman "optimization".

I thought that too, but:

With the QRC holes gone, there could be a different shape with more mounting options?

Guess we'll see when the full roll-out is done.

I think it will be like that as well. If you look in the picture of Martin Hudy holding the car (with bodyshell) you can just see the 'Y' shape at the front of the top deck.

Problem is, on carpet, I like to use the thick black spacers to allow me to fit the steering through the topdeck. I don't trust myself not to rip the steering posts through the chassis when crashing indoors.

they may add a link between steering posts and a single screw to connect it to top deck like tamiya etc.

That's too funny. I was looking at that picture as well and the first thing that came to mind was, how many guys are over-magnifying that picture just to get a jump on the wild speculation market. Just too funny.

I wonder if they tightened the bearing hole tolerances ?
That would be great imo.
